1st State Bank, in partnership with WNEM TV-5, Great Lakes Bay Regional Lifestyle Magazine, and the Young Professionals Networks of Saginaw, Bay and Midland counties, is launching the 9th Annual RUBY Award for professionals in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
The annual award recognizes some of the area's best and brightest individuals under the age of 40. Since its inception, over 90 recipients from varying fields and industries have been recognized through this award.
RUBY Award organizers are requesting nominations of people under 40 years of age who live or work in Bay, Midland or Saginaw County. The primary consideration will be their success in their chosen profession. Once applications are submitted, nominees will be interviewed for more detailed information. Qualified candidates will be judged by a panel of professionals from throughout the Region and there will be multiple recipients.
Nominations will be accepted until November 4, 2013, with forms available at 1st State Bank offices located at 4800 Fashion Square Blvd and 5424 State Street in Saginaw, 601 N. Madison in Bay City; or at www.1ststatebk.com, under "About Us."
Forms are also available here, at the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce, 515 N. Washington Avenue, Suite 201, and in the October issue of Great Lakes Bay Regional Lifestyle Magazine.
Finalists will be announced in January 2013 and profiled in various media sources. 1st State Bank will host a banquet in their honor around February/March 2013 at Apple Mountain Resort in Freeland, Michigan.
